City Year Boston's Starry Night - A Virtual Bright Spot

Investment Community Breakfast Event Committee

Investing in Boston's Students

Investors from all over Boston are supporting the incredible work of City Year through the annual Investment Breakfast. Support from companies like Bain Capital, Summit Partners, Abrams Capital and so many more keep our committee strong and committed and this year we raised over $600,000 for the organization. City Year Boston’s Investment community has been together for over 10 years now, because when it comes to investing in success, we know that City Year is a sure bet. We want you to keep this organization thriving and ensure that all the AmeriCorps members that want to mentor students have the opportunity to do so for years to come.

Please consider supporting our Starry Night Campaign to help even more students in Boston Public schools get the assistance they deserve from our AmeriCorps members.

City Year Updates

In March, Boston Public Schools (BPS) announced the closure of all 125 schools citywide. These school closures left 50,000 Boston students without access to in-person schooling.  City Year Boston is working closely with BPS to provide innovative distance learning opportunities to students, adapting our Whole School Whole Child program model to suit virtual spaces.

While teachers continue to provide whole-class instruction using platforms like Google Classroom or Zoom, City Year’s AmeriCorps members are providing academic supports in English language arts/literacy and math by facilitating breakout groups, answering questions, and leading enrichment activities.  Our corps members are assisting teachers in planning lessons and reviewing students’ assignments and holding office hours to provide one-on-one and small-group tutoring.  Importantly, our AmeriCorps members are also supporting students’ social-emotional health and placing phone calls home to students and their families as a way to build connectedness, troubleshoot, and communicate updates. 

City Year Boston is one of the only partners to support Boston Public School students throughout the COVID-19 pandemic

City Year’s support of virtual classrooms is a pivotal step in preventing learning loss and generating opportunities for new learning, as well as ensuring greater equity of experience among families who may not otherwise have the ability to facilitate in-home instruction.  Beyond this school year, City Year will continue to engage in the virtual space to support BPS students and will be in schools next year to support students when they will need more than ever.
